Menu goes off screen

using XS 4.1.6 on a Mac (OS X 10.8.4)

While typing in the using directives, the list of available directives goes off screen

The attached image shows what I mean. While this is not a big issue, if there is only 1 item in the menu, it is not visible (for example Newtonsoft shows, but JSon doesn't from the submenu)

How did you get that - for me the popup window always pops up below at that position.
(since it has a maximum size it can't really grow too big)
Comment 2 Paul Johnson 2013-07-23 05:07:18 UTC
Dunno - it just does it. Is there any sort of debug flag I can issue when starting XS that may help you?
Comment 3 Mike Krüger 2013-07-23 05:56:13 UTC
Are you working in a multi monitor environment ?
Comment 4 Paul Johnson 2013-07-23 06:58:29 UTC
Nope. One monitor - Acer S240HL - nice 24" widescreen job
